The City’s Parking Services team recently asked the public to provide feedback for various on-street parking areas. Comments were accepted for three weeks and feedback was received from 63 people. Some blocks did not have any feedback related to the proposed changes, while other blocks had five or more comments. Thank you to the on-street parking customers who submitted dozens of comments and shared their perspectives.
Our Parking Services team reviewed each comment along with recommendations from the Downtown Parking Study and the results are in!
In order to keep on-street paid parking EASY, CONVENIENT, and ACCESSIBLE, the City proposed to update time limits for 147 on-street parking spaces in preparation for the replacement of the outdated on-street paid parking devices that are at the end of their 2G technology life.
Overall, on-street paid parking customers will see an increase in 4 hour and all-day spaces. Approximately 21 of the proposed meter updates will remain the same. Time limit updates will be activated some time in February, weather permitting. You can always check status of meters with the interactive On-Street Paid Parking Map.
Proposed and implemented time limit updates:
|Now||Proposed||# of Meters||Implemented|
|2 Hours||4 Hours||61||50|
|4 Hours||2 Hours||6||0|
